Notes

* = Nigel Hall mostly solo, w/George adding some fills on bass


Note this show was billed as a post-Phish "Sullivan Hall 3rd Anniversary" show and started well after midnight. So technically it started in the very early morning hours of 1/2/11.

Every time I post something I've run in this configuration (with different mic patterns for each mic) at Sullivan Hall, someone invariably comments "What is up with the different mic patterns?" Well, in this room it's impossible to set up in the center of the room unless you set up in the very back, next to the soundboard (or hang your mics from the ceiling). So I generally opt for getting really really close, and taping my stand to a column about 10 feet from the stage. The column is unfortunately just inside of the left PA speaker, far off center. So what I do is point the left mic straight at the stage in subcard setting (appropriate when you're 10 feet from the source) to get mostly what's coming out of the PA and some stage bleed-through and then point the right mic wide to the right (in hypercard to give me a bit more reach) and the ratio of stage volume to PA volume flips -- in the right mic I get slightly more stage volume and slightly less PA. In most cases it works out pretty well, and it definitely did on this recording. The upshot is that you get a bit more guitar and cymbals and a bit less vocals in the right channel. Ultimately I think this is the best I can do given the situation (if I wasn't coming from a Phish show before I'd probably have attempted to run a SBD+onstage mic matrix). I have experimented with different configurations, but I think this tends to yield the most pleasing results. It is a difficult work securing my stand on the column, though.


ALSO note: I have posted Bob "NYLifer" Jacobson's early and late sets, recorded from farther back in the room, near the SBD. So if you would prefer a more well-balanced but slightly more distant recording (of the entire show), you can find it here: http://www.archive.org/details/PorterKimockKreutzmannHall2011-01-01.nylifer.sen441.flac16
